With the right sound design this could be awesome! 


 


I used royalty free stock footage for the anaimations, but I also uploaded the edit with out any animation cause I know someone on here could do better and just use the original as a guide.

So here's a really belated cheque photo, since it came through the mail the day after I caught a plane to HoA UK. But it is unbelievably super duper to come home to a cheque that will help pay off a trip to meet hitRECorders in person. gahh I'm officially a paid artist! You're all pretty marv, influencing what I'd like to do in life and so forth. Thank you for everything. <3


 


Love,


Steph.

My first JoeRud remix!


When I remix a song, it's usually instinctive and I get it done in one evening. But I've spent the last 4 days immersed in this wonderful JoeRud song. Something about it compelled me to take my time and try and create something that would take the song to the next level. So this one is a bit of a labour of love.


So I've added a whole bunch of stuff in the usual way, but really taken my time with it. I know I wanted to make it very upbeat and poppy but also allow some room for further remixing and maybe for someone to maybe take it in another direction. 


Thanks to Joe himself for giving me some feedback on an earlier mix. 


Stems to follow.

(Set on a plane that is leveling out after take off. It is a night flight. Two strangers are sat next to each other. One by the aisle is dressed smart and "looks wealthy" (Red). There is a gap between them. The window seat has a very nervous flyer. Dressed casually, a little untidy (Sam). Sweaty palms, shaky, eyes down.)


Red


Are you ok? (Pause) Excuse me, I'm sorry. Are you ok?


Sam


(Looks up) Umm yeah. I don't like flying.


Red


I can see that! Pardon me for asking, but do you have medication for your nerves?


Sam


No. No, I don't. I thought I would be ok.


Red


You just got to loosen up a little. It is a six hour flight. Can you sleep?


Sam


I don't like sleeping on planes.


Red


Window seats are usually reassuring


Sam


It is dark out there. Nothing to see. Anyway, I prefer the aisle seat. Quicker escape. (manages a wry smile)


Red


Quicker escape? Statistically, You have more chance of dying in a car accident than you do in being on a plane that crashes.


Sam


I know it is an irrational fear. I had hypnotherapy and all it did was make me see that my fear is ridiculous, but I am still scared. But now, I feel stupid too.


Red


It isn't stupid. (Presses button for air hostess) What part of flying scares you? The landing? Turbulance?


Sam


(pauses) The lack of control, turbulance, stranger danger, claustrophobia. Something creeps in.


Red


DO you drink? (Sam nods) I like a drink, it helps settle me. (air steward comes over) Excuse me, can I get a few drinks for me and my new friend please.


Air Steward


Of course. Anything in particular?


Red


(looking at Sam) Spirits? (Sam nods) Gin and tonic please. And you? (to sam)


Sam


I'll have the same. please. (nervous) thank you.


Air Stweard


(To sam) Are you ok?


Sam


Just Peachy.


Red


Nervous flyer. (Air steward accepts this and goes off) So, you are stuck with me for a few hours, what's your name?


Sam


I'm Sam.


Red


Well I'm Red. Nice to meet you.


Sam


And you. What do you do, Red?


Red


Me? I'm an investment banker. Not the kind that bankrupt countries.


Sam


What other kinds are there?


Red


Ha! I just control a few big accounts. (Drinks arrive) Thank you. (Sam knocks their drink back) You better keep them coming. Better?


Sam


Think I will need a few more. (manages a smile) Do you like your job?


Red


Yeah, keeps me comfortable. What do you do?


Sam


Metaphysical bio research scientist.


Red


Wow! What a job! (laughs) What on earth is that exactly?


Sam


I can't say too much because of what we are working on.


Red


Top Secret? Intriguing!


Sam


It is more an alternative, abstract process and looking at ideas and concept and trying to make it work.


Red


(More drinks arrived) How many of these am I going to have to give you to get more information? Sounds really cool.


Sam


(nervous) Oh I'd get into a lot of trouble. It is just an experimental science that doesn't always sit comfortably with normal folk.


Red


Isn't all science experimental?


Sam


(timid again) I guess. I just don't find traditional concepts challenging enough.


Red


Thinking outside the box! you and me are very alike, Sam. My job is all about thinking about the box.....


(Red talks about his job as camera fades. We fade back to an hour ish later where they both appear a little more drunk)


Sam


I like you. You were not what I expected at all.


Red


What did you expect?


Sam


I thought you were sat in the wrong seat! You should be in first class, surely?


Red


Too stuffy and pretentious. They find out what I do and want insider knowledge. Who in economy can afford the investments I work with. AM i right? (arrogantly nodding)


Sam


You are right! Completely! So you are good at keeping secrets?


Red


Well It is a case of knowing when to keep things held tight to your chest, when to play your cards. You have to be ruthless at times, unethical. But it is about the bigger picture. A few casulties along the way are just Cannon fodder.


Sam


"Cannon Fodder" isn't a nice way to talk of people.


Red


(dismissive) well, you know what I mean? A few losses for the bigger reward. That's life.


Sam


(looks at Red as if thinking about what they have said) That is life. (drinks) that is life. Absolutely. My speciality.


Red


Life is your speciality?


Sam


Well, souls.


Red


Excuse me? I don't understand.


Sam


Shhh can you keep a secret?


Red


(Containing their excitment) You bet I can


Sam


My science is a little bit unethical too. Private investors. Very rich.


Red


What are they investing in?


Sam


Life. Kinda. Their soul. I am working on ways to extract souls and place them in new shell


Red


A new shell? Like a body.


Sam


Shhh. Yeah like a body.


Red


(excited) How? Why?


Sam


My clients want to live forever. Before they die they want their memories, soul, life being transferred into a new body to continue living.


Red


What about the soul in the body?


Sam


There cannot be a soul in that body. Or in theory there shouldn't be.


Red


In theory?


Sam


Well, Ideally I am looking for a straight swap.


Red


But if the rich person is dying who would want to swap?


Sam


Money can motivate in alot of ways. You know that.


Red


Has it worked? I have alot of rich clients. This could be something they would like to invest in.


Sam


It isn't at a stage where I can get volunteers really. I have to find other ways of testing.


Red


How?


Sam


This is really bad. I'm not proud of this. (pause) homeless because no one misses them. Criminals. The really bad ones.


Red


(shocked) that's awful.


Sam


Just cannon fodder. (looks sternly.) I take my research very seriously. We have tried artificial hosts, hence the need for money to develop that tech. But it is very difficult to have a functional bio mechanical interface, y'know?


Red


I'll be honest. I don't know.


Sam


Want another drink?


Red


Actually, no. I have to drive when we land. Think I am going to have a sleep. Don't mind do you?


Sam


Oh no. Not at all. Thank you so much for keeping me company. You have taken my mind off the whole flight thing. Thank you.


Red


No problem. I'll see you in a few hours.


(gets cosy and camera fades out. As camera fades back we see both Red and Sam sleeping as the air steward walks by them, checking on them. As the air steward goes past we see Sam open their eyes. Sam rummages through a bag and pulls out an electronic device with two plug style points on each end. Sam pulls a syringe and injects Red. Red shows discomfort as the pin pricks them but goes back into a deeper sleep. Sam Connects a plug point into both wrists on them and then into the wrists of Red.)


Sam


(Whispering) I'm sure you will understand. Just Cannon Fodder. But all for the greater reward.


(Sam presses some buttons and something is activated. It clearly hurts. Sams Eyes turn black and we can see Sam drain of energy and gradually collapse against the window as if asleep. Camera Fades)


(Camera fades up to the plane already landed at the gate and Red is up and grabbing the bags and joins the others in getting off the plane. Sam is still "asleep". When the plane is empty the air steward approaches)


Air Steward


Excuse me. We have landed, time to wake up.


Sam


(Stirring) Oh. Damn. My head.


Air Steward


We have landed now. Are you ok? See there was no need to be so nervous.


Sam


I wasn't nervous it was the other......(notices they are sat by the window.) When did I sit here?


Air Steward


You have been here for the whole flight. Are you ok?


Sam


No I had an aisle seat. When did I move here?


Air Steward


(confused) You were here the whole time. Can I get you some water?


Sam


But I was sat there (raises arm and sees the clothes) What the hell has happened? (catches reflection in window) Oh my god, no! no! (freaks out)


(Cuts to Red confidently walking out the airport and through passport control)


Passport Officer


Passport please. (Red passes the passport) How was the flight?


Red


Oh Just Peachy.


(End)

I don't know any other musicians but I really wanted to contribute to this collab, so I thought I'd find another way around.  After all, who doesn't love playing with themself?


The split in each scene is pretty obvious due to the basic video rendering program that I have, but it is simply meant to give an idea for the video gurus out there who might want to do it better.  I will also soon be uploading the 12 minute one shot raw footage from which everything came.  I made sure the lighting didn't change and the camera didn't move so anyone with a decent video program should be able to combine the footage and make it look seamless.  I hope this is useful.


Audio files are attached as a zip.

Here's a character for the Strangers with Guns film. I used babylove's template, of course. This is a tad rough but I suppose it'll get tidied up for animation.


It could be an action character or it could be a troubled youth packing heat into his high school. Either way, trouble.

Pat: Oh. look Someone’s giving away a free barbecue on Craigslist.


P: Ughhh.


Pat: What? Wouldn’t that be fun?


P: Where are we gonna put it?


Pat: We can put it outside our complex next to the pool.


P: But then when I wanted to use it I would be forced to talk to people and people like bad movies and have opinions.


Pat: Damnit You never want to leave the house and all you want to do is hang out with me.


P: Yes exactly. You’re all I want. Just the two of us. Can we die happy now please?


Pat: I’m not happy.


P: Look this barbecue is going to create a sense of community that I really don’t want to be a part of.


Pat: Why do you hate humanity so much?


P: I don’t hate humanity, I love YOU.


Pat: You couldn’t possibly be happy with just the two of us for the rest of your life?


P: Yes I could. Listen if we put the barbecue out there we’re going to start getting invited to things with our neighbors and then we’ll start to remember their names and then we’ll have to start getting them birthday and christmas presents and then god forbid if something happens with the barbecue like a grease fire and the complex goes up in flames then we’ll get blamed for it. This barbecue can only lead us to bad scenarios, I’d rather just cook my steak in a pan and hang out with you. End of discussion.


(Beat)


Cut to Pat cooking a steak on the barbecue next to the pool. Patterson is holding a beer with a miserable look on his face.


Pat waves to one of the neighbors and smiles really big.


 


 


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This is from a cartoon I was going to do called Pat and Patterson which I'll probably never get around to doing so I thought I would modify the scene and turn it into a cold open for the Number 2 theme. 


Enjoy and remix however you see fit. Originally my two characters were both male but I think the scenario can work with a male and a female character or two females. 


I would love to hear a voice over of this and especially acted out between two actors.

I was writing this one for the freestyle collab but I missed the boat on that one. Figured I'd still share it with everyone since I'm happy with how it turned out. Enjoy!
